  1. New Macross TV Series in 2018

    Pics would be greatly appreciated!
  2. New Macross TV Series in 2018

    How about going retro and introducing propeller driven VFs? I don't know, make up some kind of cockamamie technoexcuse to require them in outer space.
  3. Aircraft Super Thread Mk.VII

    Yep, definitely looks like a quad mount 1.1 inch. What's amazing is how well the markings have survived on the Devastator and Wildcat. The Wildcat still shows its Felix the Cat as well as kill marks.
  4. Legos, anyone?

    Just a heads up. The UCS Millennium Falcon (75192) is available on Amazon at MSRP.
  5. Wave 1/72 VF-4 lightning

    Bandai's VF-1 kit has the lower part of the frame (the canopy rails) separate from the canopy. It worked fine.

    The blog mentions that the kit is snap-fit (ie. no glue required). It also mentioins that the cockpit can be fitted in from below after the fuselage completed. This makes it super easy for painting. With the nose being one piece, it takes out an area that often requires seamline removal in aircraft models. And with the canopy having a separate frame piece, masking is no longer needed and makes things much easier. This is kit is looking like something that's going to be a breeze to complete!

    I don't like Satelight's animation style at all. It just looks dated and cheap. Whereas something like Yamato 2199 looks positively amazing. Even Girls und Panzer looks better. The dated look would be forgiveable if the action scenes were well done. But it isn't. It looks like they're trying mimic Itano in places but most of the time it just looks completely uninspired.

    But the RAF could've had F-15s for less cost and less headache. Though TBH, I'm glad they didn't because the Tornado F.3 is a pretty cool looking jet.
  9. DX Chogokin VF-1J

    We don't really know if it's actually 1/48 scale. The tweet says "1/48-ish". Knowing Bandai, it could be yet another "non-scale" where it's close enough to be 1/48 or somewhere between 1/48 and 1/35.
  10. Gundam Plamodel Thread IV

    I'm not familiar with high-gloss kits but, I assume it's similar to what I'm facing with a metallic coating kit (Akatsuki). I want to add a bit of panel-lining but it's tricky because the metaliic finish can easily get damaged or come off if you use anything hot like enamel or lacquer. I'm thinking of using Vallejo's dark gray wash as I heard it's water based so it should be safe to use.
  11. 1/48+fp's, 1/60+fp's, 1/72, 1/2k, 1/3k,1/100 and now 1/144

    I made one with the 1/72 kit.
  12. The first giveaway of this being a fake, is that the kanji for kanzen (完全) and henkei (変形) is written incorrectly. It also says "3 タイフ" (instead of 3 タイプ)Then there's also the non-sensical word after the red "VF-1A" plus another heinous mistake underneath the fighter image that says "VF-1A ガウォーハルキリーー" 
  13. To add explosions and lens flares to the show.
  14. Toys R Us files Chapter 11

    Are kids today even interested in toys?
  15. Aircraft Super Thread Mk.VII

    My feeling is that the USAF would never accept a turboprop like the A-29. Nor would they accept Textron Scorpion. They would likely reject both and cite lack of speed for rejecting them. The better contender might be the winner of the T-X program - with T-50 and the Boeing submission perhaps being the strongest choices. Both are powered by the GE F404 so there is good amount of thrust there, as well as familiarity.
